Microworms might work if you need a small live food.

The one good thing about frozen foods is that you can shave them much easlier than trying to chop live or defrosted foods. Hopefully it won't come to that. I know there are places that sell daphnia culturing kits if it comes to that so you can hatch out your own. ( My neighbor does this to start his Koi fry on larger foods.) There also is another FW shrimp called a fairy shrimp which is a little larger than brine shrimp in case non of the other foods work. I'd think their nupluii would be larger than BBS and smaller than adult brine shrimp.
Hope this helps

I've kept a few dozen different species of pygmy sunfish and as long as they aren't absurdly tiny sized they should be able to take down full sized thawed bloodworms just fine. My adults would even eat freshly hatched BBS, so that's another relatively easy option. Here's a video.
